IMRG MetaPack UK Delivery Index - August 2016 (reporting July)

Is the Brexit decision giving UK shoppers pause for thought?

  • The first full months trading after the Brexit decision shows that UK shoppers may be taking a cautious approach with very little growth in July; a month that usually delivers a mini-peak in the volume of e-retail orders.
  • Within the UK the increase in the use of Next Day services continues as retailers use delivery offers to entice and keep customers, but despite this the level of on time delivery remains high.
  • Average order values have recovered slightly on last month, mainly driven by an increase in sales to EU shoppers.
